Balanced Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic is a profession that focuses on diagnosing and treating disorders of the muscles, joints, and nervous system. Patients of all ages, ranging from infants to the elderly, can be effectively treated with an individualized plan. Chiropractic has classically been thought of only consisting of spinal adjustments, but has evolved into including modalities such as therapeutic exercise and soft tissue techniques.  Your chiropractor may also recommend lifestyle modifications including diet, sleep, and ergonomic advice.

At Balanced, the difference is in our name! We believe in Chiropractic care that has a more Balanced and comprehensive approach. We believe chiropractic care needs to be more comprehensive and adjustments generally require additional treatments to increase the effectiveness. Individualized plans are developed for each patient following a comprehensive evaluation, so there are no cookie cutter approaches to care

Chiropractic FAQ

  • What conditions do Chiropractors treat?
    Chiropractors are especially well known for their expertise in caring for patients with back pain, neck pain and headaches. They also care for patients with a wide range of injuries and disorders of the musculoskeletal system, involving the muscles, ligaments and joints. Chiropractors can also counsel patients on diet, nutrition, exercise, healthy habits, and occupational and lifestyle modification.
  • Is chiropractic treatment dangerous?
    The short answer is no! Most significant adverse events occur because they have been developing for many years. Adverse events occur in less than 1% or patients
  • Why does Balanced not order imaging for everyoneDO
    Imaging is not needed to treat underlying conditions. It should only be used to rule out potentially serious conditions. There is little to no association between pain and dysfunction and imaging results in most cases. Posture is different for everyone; there is no correct posture.

    We order imaging to rule out serious pathology.
  • Are my bones really out of alignment?
    No! While some bones may become very slightly rotated due to muscular tone, your bones are right where they need to be. Adjustments are extremely effective in reducing pain through endorphin release and decreasing muscular tension to improve spinal movement.
  • Do I need a referral for chiropractic?
    No referral is needed in Virginia. You can call to make an appointment today!
